Bay views and great food, a winner with the locals
Driving along the Redcliffe Peninsular waterfront last weekend, we were surprised at how busy and popular most of the cafés, and restaurants were. We ended up at the southern end of Redcliffe at Woody Point and choose to eat at the Watersun Cafe, located within the iconic Belvedere Hotel complex, which boasts the famous Steak and Crabhouse.
The Watersun Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch or for coffee and cake every day from 8am. It is also open for dinner until 8.30pm if you want a quiet spot to catch up with friends or family. We have dined here at breakfast and have enjoyed the delicious breakfast menu, but last weekend we had lunch here. We were just as impressed with lunch as we were with breakfast.
Sitting on the deck overlooking the Bramble bay towards the Hornibrook Bridge is very relaxing especially on a picture perfect Winter's day. There is seating both indoor and outdoor. You get both water views and sunshine. We were lucky to get a table as it was quite busy.
Our meals were chosen well as we all were very happy with our selections. My husband went for his "usual" which was the salt and pepper calamari ($19). He was very impressed as it was tender and melt in your mouth delicious. It was accompanied with a fresh salad and chips.
I initially wanted the lamb salad but they were out of lamb so I asked for the chicken breast with roast pumpkin salad which turned out better than I expected, as the chicken was cooked just right and was not dry.
The staff were friendly and efficient, as they had our drink orders out to us in no time at all. Even though it was busy, our meals also didn't take long to reach our table.
We came to the conclusion that the Watersun Cafe ticks all the boxes for us for either lunch or breakfast. Good location, great food, wonderful views and relaxing atmosphere. Oh and the coffee is pretty good too.
A great "local" for a great feed any time of the day.
